THE SEARCH is on for a much-loved and well-known pet raccoon who has gone missing from her Hucknall home.

Elmo has featured previously in the Dispatch, along with her companion, Effy the skunk, and even has her own Facebook page.

But in the early hours of Saturday morning (June 4), Elmo escaped from her large outdoor enclosure at a home on Yorke Street.

Distraught owner Joe Coupe has now launched a campaign to track her down and has dished out 600 flyers featuring a photograph of the beloved pet, who is two years old.

Joe, who is pictured with Elmo, is asking anyone who spots the raccoon to call him on 07540 974699.
